Rumors about Roderick Blakney
According to information of the Hoop, Roderick Blakney is one of the alternative solutions of Aris for the position of the point-guard. Sam Van Rossom(1.88-PG) is the first choice but in Aris they won't be able to compete with a team that can offer Olimpia Milano more money to acquire the player on-loan.
On ther hand not much is happening in Panellinios and the team resemles a ghost town of sorts. So in Aris they're thinking that if Van Rossom is lost(Zaragoza was the last team that was interested) they could turn to veteran Roderick Blakney(1.81-PG) who knows the Greek League after many years of playing there and he also has a Bulgarian passport that allows him to play without occupying a foreigner spot. Despite his 34 years of age Blakney had a great season with Panellinios going all the way to the Final 4 of the Eurocup. He averaged 11.2 points 2.1 rebounds and 3.1 asists in 18 games in the Eurocup.
